Default wide clod axles AND hybrid bft steppins are done

here they are all set up steering has definetly improved. though the first time i broke a welded axle. i think it was my fault as i tried to straighten it with a hammer for install all other three were nice and straight. i guess to many beers when i welded that one. ok let the questions fly . o yeah i forgot to mention the finished hybrid tires. i have not been able to test them out at the crawling site because of the broken axle but in my yard they look to have potential i plan on adding some extra pins in between offset to either side making the tread pattern look like a snake to help with side hilling and sand paddle up and down as they roll. YOU HAVE BEEN CALLD OUT BITCHES

the axles were cut and another section of axle was welded in the center refer to the original post for pics. i would like to have some machined but i thought i would try this first.

It looks good man Now how dose it work on the rocks? I am sure this does nothing but make you a stonger compeditor . But hay you had the will to do it first and it looks sweet. Machined axles those would be just sweet. Hope to see your crawler with a set of those one day. 1.000 $ later LoL did you run this in the comp on sat. ? If so how did they do. I can't see any reason they would not do well. All the other ideas you have had work.


Later Surferboy
